Castles in the air...

It adds a distinctly distinguished air to Condé sur Noireau. It also houses a renowned furniture collection.

Great markets make for perfect days...

The general market that is held in the town every Thursday is a great place to buy your fresh locally grown fruit and veg, to taste and discover local cheeses and ciders, to meet and chat with friends old and new, and to relax at a pretty pavement café and watch the world happen around you. Perfect days!

Outdoors and active

There are lots and lots of sporting activities, starting with the superb swimming pool and ten-acre park with a fitness circuit at the Espace Aquatique. This is not just a swimming pool, but a complete water park with a giant slide, three individual pools, fountains and fun all the way for all the family. Then there is horse-riding, canoeing and kayaking, walking, cycling, rock climbing and mini golf, to name but a few of the options that are available within the region.

Exploring the area

Condé sur Noireau lies in an area of Normandy that is known as Swiss Normandy, and this means that there is lots of beautiful countryside to explore. You are also close to the historic beaches of the Normandy Landings and the battles of the World Wars, so if you want to remember those who fought then you can pay a visit and live a little history. The beaches are beautiful in their own right too, not just as historical monuments, so when the sun shines take a towel and pack that bucket and spade and head for the beach.

Interesting towns to visit in the area

There are lots of lovely and interesting towns and villages to discover in the area. Try Avranches, with its shops, museums and markets, or treat yourself to a day at the seaside at the beautiful resort of Mont St Michel.

How to get there

It is always easy to access towns in Normandy, as the ferry ports are so close by, particularly Le Havre, Caen (Ouistreham) and Cherbourg. There are also airports at Dinard, Rennes and of course in Paris, but the ferry or the tunnel trains are probably the better options for those wishing to travel from the UK. Should flying be your preferred method of transport, however, then Dinard is served by Aurigny and Ryanair, Rennes by Flybe and Paris by a multitude of airlines.

Property prices and availability in and around Condé sur Noireau

Normandy in general can be a good place to seek property in northern France, as it tends to be a little cheaper than Brittany, where foreigners have pushed house prices up in recent years. Recent investment in Normandy has improved the region too, and there are some excellent properties on the market. Look for the characterful traditional Swiss Normandy cottages, or stone built village houses which can sometimes be found at bargain prices if you are lucky.
